I want to design a MOC digitally. I can do this with ldraw, but are there any drawing programs better than ldraw to make models of LEGO ?

kind regards, Peter


Even though support has ended, the LDD software still works. Alternatively, you mention LDraw but LDraw is only a catalogue and a standard - there are different software packages that allow you to draw on top of the LDraw catalog such as MLCad and LEOCad - have you tried these to see which one works? I use MLCad extensively - it looked daunting at first but the tutorials at http://www.holly-wood.it helped a ton - worth spending a few hours doing those tutorials.

As per @Philo's suggestion: another program worth looking at is LDCad, which promises to be more convenient and more powerful than MLCad or LEOCad.

    I would suggest to give a try to LDCad, also using LDraw parts library, it is MUCH more convenient and powerful than MLCad (and LeoCAD that I used before). melkert.net/LDCad – Philo Mar 8 '16 at 12:28

There is also the google lego building app that you can design lego sets and mocs with.

Here is the link:


hope this helps
